The Legislative Assembly finds and declares that:
(1) The declaration of moratoria on construction and land development by cities, counties and special districts may have a negative effect not only on property owners, but also on the housing and economic development policies and goals of other local governments within the state, and therefore, is a matter of statewide concern.
(2) Such moratoria, particularly when limited in duration and scope, and adopted pursuant to growth management systems that further the statewide planning goals and local comprehensive plans, may be both necessary and desirable.
(3) Clear state standards should be established to ensure that:
(a) The need for moratoria is considered and documented;
(b) The impact on property owners, housing and economic development is minimized; and
(c) Necessary and properly enacted moratoria are not subjected to undue litigation. [1980 c.2 §1; 1991 c.839 §2; 1995 c.463 §2]
